Not very good, since it's missing quite a few from my area alone. Not exactly a good tool for finding blackspots.

Did you notice that you've got to select the year for which data is depicted on the map?

As far as I can tell, you can't get them all to appear at once.

I think it's the start of a brilliant tool! I was also wondering whether it's publication to coincide with the story about blanket 50 limits wasn't a coincidence? After all, if you were an evil (or at the very least, misguided) government trying desperately to stamp out car use on bogus "safety" grounds, it would be "inconvenient", to say the least, to have the public provided with access to the data on which the speed limit reduction was based, wouldn't it?!

I hope they quickly:

(a) expand it to include SIs and
(b) As has been suggested, allow us to see several years worth on the same view.
